Re: Advice, praise and learning curves

H Bruce McCrory
Of course, we like to see your work. And, everyone else's. It's the purpose of the forum. That is not my point.

No one had responded to your first display of hand cut (socket?) board. [Practice board?] I noticed, and bumbled in with my usual confusion. By the time you mastered posting photos/images, we had moved on to accept you as a member having work worthy of critique.

It's a compliment to your graduation within the ranks, so to speak. So, move along and get the show on the road. No time to waste, you know, ie., no need for cheesy gold, green or red stars. You have a few things to do in order to skip a grade and master oak dovetails.

Ps. I know I am a lousy teacher. However, we who have been beat up in the professional trades realize rewards via advancement and income, and; less 'atta-boy's (girl's)'.
